Pros

Global brand name recognition in Technology.

Cons

Pay is not competitive, heavily bureucratic company structure, too many management layers, not quite a meritocracy. Performance assessments are geared towards appearing to find "fault" rather than growth opportunities. Legend has it that

Advice to Management

Align talent with projects that utilize their core competencies. Turnover is high due to dissatisfaction with nature of project challenge and fuzzy career advancement.

    Pros

    Generally Good benefits. Coworkers are outstanding to work with.

    Cons

    Benefits are consistently declining for the past 15 years. No real improvement in benefits for past 15 years except for soft benefits that add little value for the employee. Company has progressed from very caring company to an employee beat down environment. Respect for the individual has disappeared. Aggressive layoffs yearly, unannounced to the public dismissing older employees. Morale low.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up to the way you are treating employees.

    Pros

    Great management and co-workers, come and go whenever for short breaks, no punch out time cards, hard work and long hours do pay off with recognition, free coffee all day, nice office with great views of Mississippi River, privacy rooms available for small meetings, nice conference rooms for team meetings, great desk set-up, intense but well-worth classes which offer free vouchers to obtain licenses upon completion.

    Cons

    Managers do change often but not really a con- this is a way to experience a 'fresh' outlook on team building which I suspect is why management does frequently change. If you are not one for adjustments or changes, this type of work force is not for you.
